91-YEAR-OLD BLOGGER: GET OFF MY LAWN/SITE

FURMAN BISHER: LITERALLY, WAS ALREADY OLD WHEN THE ELECTRIC TYPEWRITER WAS INVENTED

We’ve posted about former Atlanta Journal-Constitution columnist Furman Bisher before. At 91, he may not be the world’s oldest current blogger, but he’s certainly the crankiest. Earlier this week, Bisher wrote a lengthy, detailed piece on the “Inside Story of Tiger Woods.”

Bisher used a neighbor of Woods as his primary source for the article which, if true, fills in a number of gaps on the Woods story and also refutes lots of the information being put out by gossip rags like TMZ and radaronline.com. Bisher’s Tiger tale was an immediate Internet sensation and resulted in a flurry of page hits and several requests from talk shows to book Bisher as a guest.

The result? Bisher is PISSED! He actually COMPLAINED about so many people (at least 43,000) visiting his website. He wrote about “my private blog” and actually scolded people for reading his article if they weren’t friends or family. Bisher says it “irritates me” when his blog gets that many hits and “if you are among the offended, then stay off my website. It’s for friends only.”

Awesome! I’ll say it again, this is why 91-year-old dudes shouldn’t blog.
